Wrigley Field, Chicago (May 2004 / September 2005)

 
The stadium was built in 1914, making it the second oldest major league stadium today, behind Fenway in Boston.

As you can see from this shot it truly reflects the stadium construction of that time.  There are not as many seats as most ballparks (somehow they've squeezed nearly 40,000 seat out of it) and the angles are not as steep as a lot of the "municipal-style" stadiums that are quickly being abandoned.  There are plenty of seats with obstructed views but all this just adds to the charm.

I'd encourage you to visit the official site of Wrigley Field by clicking here and make sure to check out some of the interesting facts about the park and its long history.
